Lagerfeld’s Boulevard Chanel, an ironic staging of protest sign politics (using haute couture, supermodels, and the traditional Parisian boulevard protest as props), draws attention to the troubled relationship of feminist discourse to wealth and the beauty industry.

The only things missing from this political mise-en-scène are Sartre and de Beauvoir.
